Fishing

Fishing in the streams and lakes of the mountains is a rewarding challenge for skilled fishermen, and a lot of fun for the less experienced.

The Tumbarumba Region contains some good fishing lakes: Paddy's River Dam in the Bago Forest and also Khancoban Pondage. Within easy driving distance from Tumbarumba and Khancoban are Talbingo Reservoir and Tooma Dam, both storage reservoirs for the Snowy Mountains Scheme.
The secret for summer fishing in the region is the constant influx of cold water from the mountains, making the temperature ideal for trout.

Popular streams are Paddy's River, Tumbarumba Creek, Tooma River, the Swampy Plains River near Khancoban (including a blue ribbon trout stream - the lower Swampy Plains River).

The Murray River flows past the village of Jingellic, where there is a public recreation reserve suitable for camping behind the historic Bridge Hotel.

Fishing licences may be purchased at:

Tumba Valley service station, Tumbarumba

Tumba Gifts and Sports House, Tumbarumba

Union Hotel, Tumbarumba

National Parks & Wildlife Office, Khancoban

Khancoban Roadhouse, Khancoban

Khancoban Lakeside Caravan Resort, Khancoban
